​Multicultural Scholarship Program

The Multicultural Scholarship Program provides scholars with the opportunity to find their own confidence and leadership through teambuilding, active participation in our student clubs and organizations, community service, and academic excellence. Our scholars find academic excellence through an incredible network of Deans, Faculty, and upper class mentors; additionally, our scholars are provided the tools to discover their own personal success on our campus however they define it. The cultural backgrounds, perspectives, and individual stories of each scholar adds essential depth and dimension to the rich tapestry of our entire student body.

In collaboration with the Office of Undergraduate and Graduate Studies, Office of Institutional Diversity, Student Multicultural Activities Office, and Office of Admission, scholarship recipients will have an opportunity to participate in a variety of multicultural programs.  These include: The New Student Transitions Program, Horizons Retreat, Unity Week, the Diversity and Social Justice Speaker Series, A Night in Friartown, Explore, Step-up, and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Celebration.

Boasting an alumni family of over 300 Multicultural Scholarship Program graduates, scholars also have the opportunity to connect with the Providence College Alumni Network. Through this partnership along with the Center for Career Education and Professional Development, scholars have access to a wide range of internships and graduate opportunities throughout the nation. Scholars have interned at organizations that include Alex and Ani, Boston Celtics, Fidelity Investments, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Teach for America, Women and Infants Hospital and many others. 

Providence College offers multicultural students and others who are admitted the opportunity to pursue higher education in the form of several leadership and community involvement scholarship awards. The scholarships are awarded to students who are admitted to and attend PC, and are not transferable to other colleges or universities.
